How do you protect your bed from bed bugs or stop getting beg bug bites from an already infested mattress? The simple answer: High Quality Bed Bug Proof Mattress Encasements.
While an unprotected mattress has many attractive crevices and ideal hiding areas for bed bugs, fully encased mattresses and box springs do not. Lab-tested bug proof mattress covers have no cracks and crevices and are gleaming white, so bed bugs can be seen much more easily. Bedbugs only need an opening the size of a credit card to pass through material, therefore bed sheets and non-fully encasing mattress covers are not enough to stop bed bugs from making a home in your bed and having midnight meals from their host. Box springs that have rips and tears, even small ones, make your bed an even more attractive area of harbourage for these blood-sucking bugs.
Therefore, creating a tight-knit barrier by installing bed bug proof mattress and box spring covers is very effective in sealing the bugs in, and out, as well as acting as an early detection system.
Whether you are currently treating or have already treated your home for bed bugs, or you just want to prevent them, mattress covers should be your first line of defense for any bed bug integrated pest management technique. Any activity that takes place on a bug-proof encased mattress is on a perfectly flat, gleaming white surface that has no hiding areas. Blood spots, fecal matter, exoskeletons and even live bugs are easier to be seen. When activity is seen, fast action towards effective treatment can be taken.
It is also important to know that not all mattress covers are created equally. The less expensive ones will not be made from high quality materials that are durable, comfortable, bed bug bite proof, dust mite proof as well as waterproof, all while being breathable so as to not affect your sleep. So whether you’re looking for prevention or remediation service against bed bugs, bug-proof mattress covers are a great place to start.
